Jose Padilla Convicted, Finally

“This demonstrates, at least for now, that the United States is fully capable of prosecuting terrorism while affording defendants the full procedural protections of the Constitution.”
– MICHAEL GREENBERGER, who teaches terrorism law at the University of Maryland law
school, on the conviction of Jose Padilla.
About all I have to add there is: What took them so long? If these guys are really bad, just about every American will convict them if placed on the jury. So why stonewall to avoid a trial? It just doesn’t make sense. I’m glad to see that justice, such as it is, has finally been done.
